I grew up in Erie and loved Waldameer Park when I was a child. When I became a teen, I moved on to bigger and better things (Cedar Point). As an adult now with a 4-year old of my own, I have learned to love Waldameer again. The only thing it was missing, I would say, was a really great coaster . . . until now.
The Ravine Flyer II lives up to its hype. It is fast and furious throughout the circuit. The airtime in the 3rd seat is substantial, especially on the bridge over the highway. If this coaster had train cars like the Phoenix, it would easily be the top coaster on my list. As it is, it is certainly up there. Not bad for a small park that caters to pre-teens.
